The detention of migrants has become a multi-billion dollar industry in which immigrants are sold to the highest bidder and traded like mere products. The Corrections Corporation of America, The Geo Group, and the Management and Training Corporation run over 200 facilities all over the nation. These facilities offer over 150,000 bed spaces and rake in a total profit of close to five billion dollars per year. The fact that these detention centers get paid for the number of people that are in the center per night offers, therefore, no incentive to speed up the legal processes and let the detainees leave the facility.... read more
This documentary film brings to the light a few recent cases in which government employees and contractors went before the media to expose their discoveries on fraud and abuse. In every case, the whistleblower paid a high price for the exposé.
Some believe that people need to be willing to stand up and speak the truth, regardless of what the consequences might be. Whistleblowers are the pioneers of change because in order for things to get better, the truth needs to be told.
However, there are others who believe strongly that we shouldn’t make national heroes of those who steal classified information and publish it in the newspaper.
Whistleblowers have become a fundamental part of democracy because they have unquestionable patriotism and a lot of courage. These men and women have actually changed history because they stand up and say ‘something needs to be done’.
The National Security State encloses itself in a wall of silence and pretends to be interested in national security when the reality is that it’s interested in the security of corporate interests and of politicians. So it attacks and ... read more

Billionaire's Paradise: Inside Necker Island For the first time viewers are given an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at one of the most exclusive holiday destinations in the world - Necker Island. This film is an intimate portrait of how the rich, powerful and famous holiday, and what it's like for the staff who serve them. It's an upstairs-downstairs world where nearly 100 staff cater to just 30 guests - where some have over a staggering £40,000 a night to experience the perfect island paradise. And while Necker is home to Sir Richard Branson and his family, it is also a serious commercial venture. Selling the Caribbean dream to the most demanding guests in the world is a daily pressure. Over the years, the island has welcomed everyone from Princess Diana and Nelson Mandela to Kate Moss and One Direction's Harry Styles. Many of the guests are annual regulars, with one New York property developer on her twenty-first visit. There's also a mixture of heirs and heiresses to fortunes, and a ... read more
"An extraordinary work by a gifted filmmaker, "Counter-Intelligence" shines sunlight into the darkest crevices of empire run amok. The film vividly exposes a monstrous and unconstitutional "deep state" in which multiple competing chains of command -- all but one illegal -- hijack government capabilities and taxpayer funds to commit crimes against humanity in our name.
Anyone who cares about democracy, good government, and the future will want to watch all five segments of this remarkable film." - Robert David STEELE Vivas: CIA, USMC, OSS, Earth Intelligence Network and Founder, Phi Beta Iota the Public Intelligence Blog
It was Desiderius Erasmus , the great Dutch humanist, who said “Give light and darkness will disappear of itself.” This controversial film brings to light a number of dark practices that are common to what we have come to know as the Government.
The film exposes an unconstitutional state in which several chains of command are allowed to take over Government capabilities and taxpayer funds to commit heinous crimes against humanity. From its establishment, this agency has operated deceitfully; it has a clandestine side known as Black Operations as well as the acceptable side dedicated to intelligence analysis.
The CIA was set up to organize propaganda, economic warfare, preventive direct action, sabotage, demolition, subversion against hostile states, assistance to underground resistance groups, and... read more
Political power — armed central authority, with states and war — is it part of human nature? Is it necessary for human communities? Or is it a tool that ruling elites use to live at the expense of communities? A tool that does violence to human nature and the world?
Engines of Domination offers a theory of political power as a tool for making tools of human beings — an engine that converts human energy into authority and privilege for the rulers. Invented in the Bronze Age, brilliantly refined for six thousand years, today the engine has caused a human emergency that threatens to destroy our world.
This documentary makes a powerful argument that there is only one way to save the future. Armed central authority must be abolished, giving way to a world of... read more
